CPU upgrade for Compaq SR1220NX Desktop Computer

The specs for this machine state that it is a motherboard with
"Socket 478 for Intel P4 Williamette and Northwood processors
Supports Intel Pentium 4 processor up to 2.8 GHz
Supports Intel Celeron processor up to 3.06 GHz (Prescott based Celeron with 533MHz FSB)"
In other words, any CPU that is not socket 478 ( a fairly old socket now) will not even fit on the board. You do not mention your current CPU so you need to compare it with the spec above to see if you can improve it. It is an old machine/motherboard, so your money might be better going towards a motherboard or system box upgrade.

Celeron d 2.66 ghz saupot


Apologizes that English is the only language I am fluent in.
I'm assuming the above word is 'Support'.

You wish to know if the MSI 945GZN3-L motherboard, will support one of the Intel Celeron D processors, that are rated at a maximum frequency rate, ('speed') of 2.667MHz?
(2.66GHz rounded off)


2) Specifications:

"Supports Socket 775 for Intel P(entium)4 5xx, or 6xx models.
Intel Pentium D 8xx and 9xx models
Intel Celeron D processors "

The MSI 945GZM3-L motherboard will support Intel Celeron D processors, that have either a 533MegaHertz Front Side Bus, or an 800MHz FSB.

Intel Celeron D model 330
Intel Celeron D 330J
Intel Celeron D 331

They all have a 533MHz FSB. (Front Side Bus)

If this is not what you desire post back in a Comment.

For additional questions please post in a Comment.

CPU and chipset no.

First time I have heard of a medion Mim2310, Steve.

Some Medions, yes. Mim2310, no.
Not exactly a lot of these in the States.

L@@KED everywhere on the 'net for info, and it's like looking for Hen's teeth.

1) First; what is the socket number on the white CPU socket?

Scroll down to large photos. At LEAST I found a motherboard, sheesh!

Now to the 'Chipset'.
The motherboard chipset.

Before I go further;
Chip and Chipset are slang terms for I.C.
Integrated Circuit,

The motherboard chipset technology as used on your laptop motherboard, consists of a Northbridge chip, and a Southbridge chip,

Looking at a -> desktop computer motherboard as a Map, the CPU sits due North, the Ram Memory slots due East, and the expansion slots due South.
The Northbridge chip sits close to the CPU, therefore -> North
The Southbridge chip sits closer to the expansions slots. Therefore -> South ]

The Northbridge chip handles the Faster capabilities of a computer.
The Processor, Ram Memory, and HIGH-speed graphics.

[HIGH-speed graphics is the AGP technology, and PCI Express technology.
A graphics card inserted into a white long PCI slot, is NOT high-speed graphics.
Nor is using Integrated Graphics ]

The Southbridge chip handles the Slower capabilities of a computer.
Anything using the;

A) PCI bus, plus Integrated Graphics
B) IDE (PATA) bus
C) SATA bus
D) USB bus
E) Ethernet
F) Audio (Sound)

Yes, you need to know what the Northbridge chip is, along with what CPU socket is used.

The Northbridge chip is, as you probably know; under that finned aluminum Heatsink, sitting close to the CPU socket.

The Heatsink is glued onto the Northbridge chip.
You COULD use a hair dryer set to low heat, and soften that glue, to assist removing the Heatsink, and see what the ID numbers are.

JUST, a suggestion.

The nozzle of the hair dryer is moved around on the Heatsink, and not left in one spot. Use a glove on your hand, and try to GENTLY twist the Heatsink, back, and forth.

Once the glue is soft enough it should twist easily, then remove.
Problem here is the residual glue may mar the ID numbers.
May be able to remove glue, and save ID numbers.

Once the glue is softened use a thick old credit card, to scrape the glue remnants off. Use Q-tips dipped in Isopropyl Alcohol to clean.
Heatsink bottom, and top of Northbridge chip.
Takes a LOT of alcohol dipped Q-tips.

(Rubbing Alcohol)
91 or higher percent is best, but 70 percent will do.
50 percent = No IMHO
50 percent water now, and 50 percent Alcohol.

Isopropyl Alcohol is EXTREMELY FLAMMABLE!
Use in a WELL ventilated area with NO sparks or flames present!

Thermal GLUE to put back on.

List of Intel chipsets,

Just did that to get you started.
What you want is list of Intel 800 series chipsets, for Mobile,

or 900 series Intel mobile chipsets,

I'm also going to include three other chipset manufacturers. If not needed perhaps it will be reference for the future,

Out of curiosity, what is the letter/number on that VIA chipset?
Want to see what it is used for.
Post back in a Comment.

Hold the phone!
I just ran into a supposed schematic,

Clicking on the schematic enlarges it, and shows a;

1) CPU - Intel Yonah Core / Celeron M, that fits a Socket 478 processor socket.

Intel Celeron M410 uses a Socket M CPU socket,

Yep. 478 socket holes, for a CPU with 478 contact pins.
Only it's for a Mobile CPU.

The Intel Celeron M410 is Yonah Core based, and is an Intel Celeron M.
Going with your statements, and the 'schematic', (It's a Block Diagram), I concur.

CPU socket is Socket M.

If that VIA chipset IS the Southbridge chip, and it is a VIA VT8237A, then it may be safe to assume the Northbridge chip is as the 'schematic' states -> VIA VN890 / VN896

Go to the bottom of this chart, to the bold black subheading ->
VIA VN896 (Mobile)
"VIA VN896(Mobile) can support Intel Pentium M / Mobile Core Duo Processor"


Celeron M that fits a Socket M CPU socket, and Yonah Core technology based,

You can use a Celeron M 450 with no sweat.

Just for fun I did a quick search.

However to go on...................
Lets see if there is a compatible Intel dual core CPU.........

VIA VN896 Chipset Specifications;

If this holds true that it is a VIA VN896 Northbridge chip, the Intel CPU's it can support are listed. Just not by Name/Model Number.

Scroll down a little more than 1/3rd page to the blue chart,
Features of VIA VN896;

1) Intel;
Pentium M
Celeron M
Core Solo, (Misprint on their part)
Core Duo
Core 2 Duo

Front Side Bus (FSB) Support;
Either 400MegaHertz, or 533MHz, or 667MHz.

To ME, IMHO, I think the Intel Core 2 Duo Mobile processors can be used, but ONLY in the Merom, Merom-2 Core.

The one's that have NO higher FSB, (Front Side Bus) of 667MHz.

(Ahem. MT/s stands for MegaTransfers per Second.
Brought out to be more concise in explaining this technology.
I still use MegaHertz. MHz.
Mega stands for 1 Million.
Hertz stands for Cycles per Second.
Much easier for me to explain the technology, than using MT/s ]

Also we can see the Voltage Range of the Celeron M410 through Celeron M450, is 1.0 Volts to 1.3 Volts. (DC)

All the Merom, Merom-2 Core processors, that are in that chart I linked, have a voltage range of 1.0375 Volts to 1.3 Volts.

Therefore any that have a 533MHz, or 667MHz FSB, should work.

This concludes my case your honor, defense rests....

I have an Intel Celeron D 2.26GHz Socket 478 256 k /FSB 533. Is it possible to replace the Pentium 4 1.6GHz in the Vectra with the Celeron. If so what steps would I take and will I have any XP COA...

You need to check with the motherboard maker. A manual would tell you and you might be able to get the info online if you search for the above model number, find the manufacturer and look up the specs. It needs to have the same socket(form factor) and support the bus speed of the new one.
Replacing a CPU is straightforward but non trivial.

I want to upgrade my hpdv1000 pentium M processor whats the maximum upgrade allowed for this? i have upgraded it to 2gb ram from 512mb and 250gb hd from 60gb and its doin fine.

You should be able to upgrade the CPU, since it seems that the DV1000's motherboard uses a socket CPU design. But, obviously, HP would rather have you choose the CPU that you want from the beginning and stick with it.
The first thing to do is to check HP website to see what other configurations were/are sold for your model. If they sell it with faster CPUs then you can upgrade to one of them...

In order for a particular processor to be compatible with a particular laptop:
(1) the processor must be physically compatible with the laptop socket, in your case I thing you have a Soket 479 processor
(2) the laptop chipset must support the processor.
(3) the chipset front side bus speed must match the processor front side bus speed, in your case 400Mhz.
(4) the laptop BIOS must support the processor.

So I listed here processors with FSB at 400Mhz, I gues that DV1000 as a 855GM Motherboard that supports only 400Mhz with Socket 479

Pentium M

Pentium M 1.3 1300 1024 400

Pentium M 1.6 1600 1024 400
Pentium M 1.7 1700 1024 400

Pentium M 710 1400 2048 400
Pentium M 715 1500 2048 400

Pentium M 755 2000 2048 400
Pentium M 765 2100 2048 400

Celeron M

Celeron M 310 1200 512 400
Celeron M 320 1300 512 400
Celeron M 330 1400 512 400
Celeron M 340 1500 512 400

Celeron 205 1200 512 400

Celeron M 350 1300 1024 400
Celeron M 360 1400 1024 400
Celeron M 370 1500 1024 400

hi reason y it wouldn't start is because the 2 is not compatible, what u can do is get a Intel P4 not a celeronD check the socket size and make sure that it correspond with the board that u have. The board that u have uses a 478 socket size so u need to get a processor with the same socket size ok... that should do the trick

So the Socket 478 pinned pentium is not suitable. Advise: Try to exchange it with a new laptop or buy a used laptop for suitabl configuration

Cpu upgrade dell dimension 5100

Hi, according to the Dell website you have a LGA775 socket on your motherboard. Therefore, you can only buy processors that fit into this socket. Here is a list of some offered by Intel that will work: Celeron D 325 2.53 GHz Celeron D 330 2.66 GHz Celeron D 335 2.8 GHz Celeron D 340 2.93 GHz Pentium4 520 2.8 GHz Pentium4 530 3.0 GHz Pentium4 540 3.2GHz Pentium4 550 3.4 GHz Pentium4 560 3.6 GHz Pentium4 570 3.8 GHz The processors that won't work are the ones that are not compatible with this socket. Everytime you look up a cpu it will tell you which socket it is designed for. To buy a cpu you will need to decide: The brand you want. The speed of the cpu that you want. Extras i.e. Hyperthreading, etc. How much you are willing to pay for it. Then you can narrow your search as you stick within your limits. Let me know if you have more questions. Good Luck
